Rumors regarding a Dolph Ziggler heel turn have reached fever pitch over the past week and the man himself hasn't helped matters by posting a cryptic tweet that reads like he is set for a dramatic change.
Ziggler posted the following message, that has left fans confused about his future:
"I never played by the rules and I never really cared... I wish I could be the one. Dammit. I'm right here! But a story was told, not an exchange of cool moves, but a STORY! Now that story continues...

"We spend our lives on trial. We walk an endless mile...There is a daily battle for what is right. Few realize it! The fantasy of belief is what keeps us all going. Someone is going to succeed, and no matter who, it will be special! The important part is that it means something, even more than it used to! I don't fight to stay relevant. I fight to be the best. Ever.
"My nasty reputation takes me everywhere."
DOLPH HAS A NASTY REPUTATION?
Ziggler hasn't been a heel since his time with AJ Lee and Big E and since then he has been a firm crowd favorite.
Dolph cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase the night after Wrestlemania 29 and it was the biggest crowd reaction of the modern era. That shows how much the crowd are behind Ziggler regardless, but this could be a hint that he is about to turn on them.
Lana and Rusev's engagement has now been brought into a WWE storyline which means that the rivalry with Ziggler and Rusev is essentially over and so is his alliance with Lana. This leaves Ziggler free to pursue other avenues.
The "Showoff" answered John Cena's open challenge on Raw this week and the two had a fantastic match before Cena pulled off the win to retain his title. Will the two go one on one again at Hell in a Cell?
UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP?
Dolph looks like the most likely candidate to go on to face John Cena at next week's Hell in a Cell event with the United States Championship on the line. It also makes it highly likely that Ziggler could walk out with the title. given that Cena is set for a two-month sabbatical following the event.
Or, is this tweet because Ziggler has just found out that it isn't going to be him winning the title after all? Cena could easily walk into Raw the night after Hell in a Cell and drop the Championship to an up and coming NXT superstar - namely, the debuting Tyler Breeze?
Tyler does have his hands full with Samoa Joe on NXT right now, but he could always do both shows like Kevin Owens did, and WWE owe Tyler that kind of impact. Who knows, stranger things have happened.
